The second-generation Lincoln Nautilus car is presented, and the company itself positions it as a “premium mid-size crossover.” Mid-size?!…
Perhaps by American standards: because the new Lincoln Nautilus is 4.9 meters long and has a 2.9-meter wheelbase – that is, it is quite a large car. What else looks interesting: a massive radiator grille, narrow headlights and combined lights, door handles in the side line, the possibility of 2-color body painting.
The equipment was also not up to snuff. For the new Lincoln Nautilus, a gasoline 2-liter 250 hp turbo engine is offered, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. An alternative to it is a hybrid: it is built on the basis of a similar engine, but with the addition of a 100 kW (136 hp) electric motor – the total power reaches 310 “horses”.
The suspension is fully independent and spring-loaded: there are no pneumatics to change the ground clearance, but adjustable shock absorbers are still offered. In addition, the Lincoln Nautilus crossover can show off an advanced “autopilot” that allows you to move along the highway and change lanes without even touching the steering wheel. And the new Lincoln Nautilus can show off its interior: high-quality leather, a wide-format display, and an additional touch screen in the center.
Sales of the Lincoln Nautilus car will start in late 2023 or early 2024, depending on the sales market. The approximate cost is already known – about $50 thousand, depending on the version and the list of equipment.
